Centre for Technology Enhanced Learning

Since 1989, I have been involved in working with industry on collaborative research projects in science and engineering fields, particularly through the design of simulation based training systems. Drawing upon research in cognitive science and educational practice, I am interested in supporting meta-cognitive learning processes such as reflection, team training and learning to learn. I am particularly interested in the development of competence and expertise in professional learning, learning from experience and in putting pedagogical theory into practice in design. I work closely with European industries to look at educational issues with real complexity in industrial training contexts. The focus of my investigations has always been on adult learning primarily at the postgraduate level, involving simulations and virtual reality environments.

PhD Supervision Interests

The development of competence and expertise in professional learning Cognitive approaches to the design of learning technology; Games and simulations in teaching and learning; The use of multiple representations in thinking, teaching and learning with technology; Use of qualitative simulations in learning environments Adoption of new technologies in teaching and learning, e.g. Second Life and other virtual environments.

Current Teaching

I tutor and supervise student research on the Doctoral Programme in e-Research and Technology Enhanced Learning that began in January 2008, and the BSc undergraduate programme in Psychology in Education that started in October 2004.

I also engage in consultancy and give short professional development courses to industry on: Pedagogy and design of simulation-based, technology enhanced learning environments.
